In 1975, a group of art-loving citizens held the first Mount Dora Arts Festival. It was a small event, but it was a big success. It was decided to have an Arts Festival every year.
1995 – Present
In 1995, with a 30% down payment and owner-financed mortgage, the MDCA Board of Trustees purchased the building where the Arts Center is currently located.
In 2021 MDCA sold the building and have plans to move into a brand new facility on Royellou Lane in 2022/23.Today, the Mount Dora Center for the Arts brings art to lives through their annual Art Festival, classes and workshops, gallery exhibits, children’s outreach programs, and partnerships with local art studios.
